Red Arrows a have a long-standing history with Citizen watches and over the years Citizen have produced some spectacular watches for the iconic Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team. Some of the watches have been simpler in design and then some are more of this ilk. The new Skyhawk limited edition has all the gadgets that are key to an air force pilot in jaw-dropping styling.
The Promaster comes from Citizen’s Skyhawk A-T collection and boasts many tools built into the powerful Eco-Drive system. A movement with a small radio signal can pick up the atomic frequency to set itself to the correct time zone from a staggering 43 different cities. This techy piece also has the added tools of a perpetual calendar, alarms, countdown timer, stopwatch, power reserve and UTC display with backlighting.
Configured in the Red Arrow colours of red, white and black the turbine inspired case is made from stainless-steel with a chunky look. The red is used to highlight particular features of the case whilst the white pops against the mainly black backdrop for readability; key for any pilot at a glance. A pilot slide rule bezel adds a hearty feature to the case and we love the attention to detail that has gone into finishing the push-buttons and crown on the side of the watch head.
Every Citizen watch is powered by their patented Eco-Drive movement. This sophisticated technology is powered by any light, not just solar power, that charges the lithium ion cell within creating what we believe to be the most reliable battery powered watch movement in the world today.
Fitted to a mesh style bracelet with adjustable links at the back, the bracelet carries this watch well and joins at the tapered lugs on the case ends, this watch has all the quality you would expect from a top end Citizen watch.
Capping off this collector’s item, is the beautiful presentation box in Red Arrows red with presentation plaque and a scale model of a Red Arrows fighter jet. This watch is the watch for any Red Arrows fan or anybody who loves the world of Aviation.
